The latest MMASucka podcast is now live and focusses on the main talking points from the combat sports world this weekend.

Frazer Krohn and Tim Wheaton sit down each and every week and the show can be caught on Youtube, Spotify or Apple podcasts.

The latest episode can be seen below:

Tyson Fury dominates Derek Chisora

Tyson Fury took on his ‘friend’ in Derek Chisora in a fight that many people didn’t ask for. We previewed the fight last week, discussing how the fight actually came about after an Anthony Joshua fight was teased.

The fight itself was the mismatch that we all imagined it would be. Fury dominated from the first minute and Chisora never looked as if he would be able to get into it. He carried Chisora for the best part of seven rounds and it appeared that he didn’t even try to put his foot down and get his opponent out of there, arguably causing Chisora long-term damage in the future.

Did Tyson Fury look his best? We got an alternative look to his ‘Kronk’ style, a more classical Fury style. There’s no doubt however… we didn’t learn anything new.

Stephen Thompson rolls back the clock

Headlining UFC on ESPN 42Stephen Thompson was back to his best to finish Kevin Holland in between rounds four and five. We saw vintage Wonderboy in this one, mixing between the ranges, landing and not getting hit himself and nullifying any of Holland’s attacks. It took 20 minutes of a sustained beating (outside of the first round) for Thompson to get it done.

Thompson had lost his last two heading into UFC on ESPN 42 and it was nice to see one of the ‘good guys’ of the sport get back in the win column.

ONE Championship

Tim and Frazer briefly touch on the ONE championship doubleheader that went down this week. Anatoly Malykhin put an end to Reinier de Ridder‘s reign as champion, finishing him in the first round. Kade Ruotolo did what he does and got another victory and the crew wax lyrical about his potential.

Jarred Brooks also picked up the ONE strawweight belt in his main event slot on night two.

UFC 282

UFC 282 goes down this weekend and the podcast crew discuss the main event, including former champion, Jan Blachowicz‘s keys to victory. They talk about the difficult task he has ahead of him and debate why Glover Texieria didn’t take the fight.

They also discuss the co-main event, where the Paddy Pimblett hype train makes its way to Las Vegas as he takes on Jared Gordon. This is arguably the biggest test of Pimblett’s career, especially his UFC career and it will be good to see him tested in all aspects of MMA.
